Covid is here to stay. Lambda strain is taking on the real virus of the planet..

article image placeholderStudy says new Lambda variant could be vaccine-resistant
Looks like we are going to be stuck with COVID for quite a while. As we shore up on vaccinations and immunizations, it looks like the virus is finding a way out. There is a Lambda strain right now, which is more popular in Peru, in South America, which is actually resistant to all the vaccinations and immunizations antibodies, et cetera. So it clearly looks like cops and robbers. One upmanship that's going on here

Hey Shammi, you're right about humans not having been good custodians to this planet for sure. The climate change report that the UN came out with recently makes that abundantly clear. While the panic may be something we can get past in a few years, maybe. But the impact and consequences of climate change are even more serious. How Mother Nature is getting back at us. I hopefully we will survive and thrive, but it's not a given

Xiaomi, I believe I know exactly what you're getting at here, and I agree with you 100%, and I actually like the way that you put it where it's Mother Nature's way of kind of balancing things out. Fantastic way to put that. But I absolutely do agree with you there. And Unfortunately, I also agree with you that this is here to stay and this is going to be here for the longer term. I know everybody wants to be done with it

Interesting take on it!

I don't know what year it was. I don't remember. And 2020, we still have the flu. We still get a flu shot, but people still get the flu. So essentially, with the virus, you've got this organism that's really going to be here to stay. You don't have antibiotics. You know, viruses are very differently from bacteria, but, yeah, a way of neutralizing the world based on everything else that's going on. Listing take on it
